Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
--recently took a photo of a firefly with my phone after trying
unsuccessfully for 4 years.
--try to like being where I am.
--like human-powered transportation--like bikes or canoes.
--can write better than this bulleted list seems to show.
--like to think of my sense of humor as innovative, rather than
--often laugh out loud in yoga classes and sometimes fall asleep
during savassana and snore. Yet people seem to like practicing yoga
with me--not sure what that's about.
A while ago I saw a guy riding a tandem bike alone; I admired his
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm learning. Later I'll probably still be learning. I'm
working on taking action instead of over-planning, and looking
forward to working for myself helping people heal in the future.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering both important and trivial things, reading aloud, and
making up stories.
Someone recently told me that I seem to "experience the world
physically in a unique way." Yeah...I don't know what that means,
either, but I like how it sounds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some of my favorite books are by: John Steinbeck, Marilynne
Robinson, David Grossman, Howard Norman, Thich Nhat Hanh, James
Baldwin, Wendell Berry, Li-Young Lee, and David Mitchell. I read a
lot about Chinese Medicine, but now it's for school, so it's less
nerdy of me.
Loud music in the car, quieter music at home. I'd like see more
live shows, but time's limited and something's gotta give, so I'd
rather do something more conducive to conversation with my social
Baseball, Annika Bengtzon, Firefly, Boyhood, Birdman, most of the
MCU movies, lots of baseball movies with my son.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I really hate this question. Here is what I value:
Stuff that makes me laugh
Being a good parent
I meditate every day, and I practice yoga, but not nearly enough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Thinking just gets me into trouble.
I've decided to move (within the city) this spring sometime and I'm
in the middle of changing my career (for the better). Also, I want
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Studying. Sometimes cooking for myself or, better yet, for other
Is this question really about weekend habits?
Saturday mornings I like to ride my bike to get coffee.
I like good food and good restaurants, but the term "foodie" makes
me lose my appetite.
I would be happier going to a play, a concert, a movie, or seeing a
band than the ballet. Ballet is boring.
At least one weekend a month I am at home cooking for my son,
popping popcorn, watching PG-ish movies of varying quality, making
root beer floats, reading aloud, playing catch, hiking, rock
climbing (that's a new one for us)--or some combination of all
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I eat food I've dropped on the floor.
That's not entirely true. I always eat food I dropped on the floor.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You eat food you've dropped on the floor.
This is the most recent dating advice I was (forcefully) given:
"Find someone who is more like you in her goals and values than the
women you've dated in the past. Also, someone whose career matches
Since you don't know my past and don't know my career plans, this
probably doesn't help.
Write to me if you'd like--I read somewhere that women get
responses to 40% of their messages on sites like this. That's a
decent return rate.
